The can of worms is opening! To Ride or not to Ride. Collectibility vs. Function. Oh no, I am gonna sign off quietly quickly. You are a newbie and it is a valid question which has been discussed and the dead horse has been beaten on this issue. You be the judge! Do you want to ride it or not? It is all up to you. There is no set rules.

As a newbie here I've got a question I'm sure has been discussed before but alas I can't find the archives anymore (at least not anything older than 30 days) to search.

Are there bikes that due to value and not condition that you don't ride? Would you ride a Confente? a paramount 25th anniversary with gold plated fork etc.?

I'm just curious about this, as all of my bikes and any I plan to purchase are ridden.
